reference for me to install python 3.7.0

Why do you need to have latest version ? Most distros have already python2 and python3 ...

simply type

$ python

>>> print "hello world"

does that work? if it works python is already installed, google search for other tutorials :lol:

I don't have reference, but if you do in a terminal:

dpkg -l python3.*

you can see what version you have installed by looking for the 'ii'.

 

As @martinayotte, already wrote 2.x and 3.x is usually already installed. Depending on your 'project' the installed version is already sufficent for your needs and you can start programming :-)

yeah you are right guys, i now know that armbian already included python as pre-install. 

i guest i will google more about installing the interpreter and make python 3.7.0 as my default.  Because i have these e-book about python 3 version not python 2 version.

 

thank you all for your reply.

Python 3 is under heavy development. That said, depending of the age of the book I would choose the appropriate python version. The newest might not be the 'best'.

no needs to install since it is already there ... To make it default, simply remove current /usr/bin/python symbolic link and recreate new one pointing to /usr/bin/python3.7 ...
